    A bespoke cobbler will make you up a pair in leather,now that you have a suede photie of what they look like.

    Be exspensive but at the end of the day if you found a supplier that sells them they too would also be expensive.

    I see Wynsdors shoes are selling FW brand shoes at 30 a pair

    Hi Guys,just got this email from FW shoes,
    Al is the guy who is trying to remake Comos,

    Hi Savo

    Thanks for the mail

    We have hunted high and low for this shoe.

    My dad was involved in the 70's at Frank Wright and he can't find any pics or samples and there is nothing on the net

    If any of your guys have samples/pics please forward them and we will have another go at sourcing the shoes

    Cheers

    Al


    Regards,

    Alasdair Gorrod

    Alls I can say is....these must not have been popular because of their lack of pictures on the net,I mean there.s wedgies,winklepickers,suedes,brogrues from the 60's.

    Maybe the shoe was called summat else but the brand was comos?

    Why does he need photos when they are selling comos in suede already, they just need to make them to the same spec but in leather..??.

    Default Johnson como shoes

    The suede shoes shown aren't in the style of the original leather
    They were flatter over the instep and had bigger stitching around the
    Edge of the shoe. They also had leather soles.

    Which is why I cannot see where the "steel toecaps" that others have written about come from another brand perhaps mistaken for the real Comos.
